The latest John McCain ad claims Barack Obama wants to raise taxes and increase government spending- the result of which will be fewer jobs.
Putting aside the fact that the spending and the taxing facts are overly simplified- and Obama’s plan would actually result in a tax cut for most Americans – McCain’s formula just doesn’t make any sense…
+ More Government Spending
The federal government is the largest employer in the US with 2.7 million employees. The average salary of a federal government employee is over $67K per year.
Compare that to the the largest private employer Walmart. Walmart employes a million and a half fewer people and pays them about $50K per year LESS- only $17K per year.
It seems to me that more government spending would actually result in more jobs- and better paying jobs at that.
